What you will learn

Course description: 

Virtual training is a facilitator-led, live online learning event that is delivered in a virtual environment. Participants can be geographically dispersed and also individually connected. Each learner uses their own computer or other compatible device. Virtual training is synchronous, meaning that participants are connected at the same time as the facilitator. Philips virtual training events typically range from 60-120 minutes in length with a maximum of 10 participants. This socially engaging, purposefully-designed training allows participants the same quality education of an instructor-led classroom without the need or expense of traveling.

The QLAB software provides an environment in which you select a quantification tool to manipulate images. To perform image analysis and quantification, you load an image that has been acquired on a supported Philips ultrasound system into a specific Qapp you have selected. In this class the instructor will provide an overview of  how to operate the Cardiac 3DQ (3D Quantification) App tools and controls for calculating  global function  using left ventricular volumes, biplane ejection fraction with the Methods of Disks (MOD) and discuss the option to calculate left ventricular mass.



Course objectives: 

Upon completion of this course, the learner should be able to:

  • Explain how to browse for data sets to import into the study list of QLAB.
  • Discuss how to launch data sets into the Cardiac 3DQ App.
  • Explain how to operate the Cardiac 3DQ App tools and controls for calculating left ventricular global function.
  • Discuss how to calculate left ventricular volumes and ejection fraction (EF) step-by-step using a biplane method.
  • Describe using the 2Ch/4Ch template and the simple polygons manual trace technique for calculating volume and ejection fraction with the Method of Disks (MOD).
  • Discuss enabling left ventricular mass in preferences to calculate end-diastolic and end-systolic mass.
  • Explain how to edit the 2Ch/4Ch template, simple polygons manual trace for volumes and the 2Ch/4Ch templates for left ventricular mass.
